RIYL: The Pillows, ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, Base Ball Bear

Label: All The Anime Music

Ah FLCL, one of the greatest anime achievements, left an indelible mark on my psyche with it’s over-the-top style, coming of age story, ridiculous characters, and of course it’s killer soundtrack (prominently featuring Japanese Alternative darlings “The Pillows”). The story, which follows the escapades of a 12-year-old boy named Naota who gets bashed in the forehead with a bass guitar and then has robots emerge from a portal formed in the wound (seriously), was what launched “The Pillows” into the North American scene, especially with the rocking ending track “Ride a Shooting Star”.

The soundtrack itself will take you on a ride through the cosmos, as well as bring you back to the guitar heavy alt rock sound of the 90s with some great lyrical stylings (even if you don’t know Japanese, which I do not). Definitely something to put on a sunny day, stare out the window, and wonder what happened to life.

It’s really nostalgic, it’s really really good, and it’s really x3 going to sell fast so get your hands on it quick or be forever sad. Nothing can happen ’til you swing the bat.
